Teamsters Exposed

Information Teamsters organizers hope your employees don't see before your upcoming union election.

  • Is your company facing a Teamster election that threatens to drive a wedge between you and your employees?
  • Are your employees only getting one side of the story from a paid organizer or deluded Teamster supporters?
  • Have your employees fallen for the "too good to be true" promises of a union organizer?
  • Do you wish there was a way to quickly and easily get THE FACTS into the hands of your employees - before it is too late?

Like any good salesman, the Teamsters organizer is trained to tell your employees exactly what they want to hear. They exaggerate the benefits of the Teamsters while avoiding or even covering up the problems. The organizer knows that most employees - when given a chance to see the facts - will not vote to be represented by a union.

How will your employees find out the truth? Here are THE FACTS your employees need to see TODAY. Before it is too late.

Campaign Literature







In 1989 the Justice Department brought a racketeering case against the The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), saying that it was a "wholly owned subsidiary of organized crime." Since 1992, the Teamsters have been overseen by an Independent Review Board (IRB) that is charged with making sure the union stays clean. It is not entirely clear that this IRB has succeeded.

• Four of the last eight Teamsters presidents have been indicted.

• A 1999 Congressional report accused the Teamsters, under President Ron Carey's leadership, of "misuse of union assets, misrepresentation of the IBT's financial affairs, questionable transactions, and illegal activities during the 1996 IBT election, all at the expense of the rank-and-file."

• A 2002 article in the generally pro-union New Republic magazine noted "... Indeed, corruption within the Teamsters may actually have increased in recent years … Hoffa has been in office only a little more than two years, but already the IRB has charged several Teamster officials with corruption and with mob associations.”
